Nicola Benedetti’s first appearance with us.

A musician always confounding expectations, violinist Nicola Benedetti performs with us for the first time in this concert.

She’s joined by conductor Marin Alsop for a programme of Beethoven performed with pure unvarnished musicality. 

Sandwiched between the complex Third Symphony and the iconic Fifth, Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony is a gentler, more intimate affair that harks back to older music and shows the distinct influence of Haydn.

Written in the same year as the Fourth Symphony, Beethoven’s only Violin Concerto was one of the first pieces written for the instrument on a large scale.

Enjoy this exploration of the variety of Beethoven’s music with two artists of international distinction.

Pre-concert talk: 6pm, Clore Ballroom, Royal Festival Hall. With special guests Marin Alsop, Nicola Benedetti and Lisa Beznosiuk.
